In this post, I'll be walking you through the wedding day timeline involving two wedding ceremonies in one day. The couples I tend to work with are a little more reformed and modern but still want to preserve elements from their heritage. This most often times means that there will be two ceremonies on one day.
You would think that today it would be easier than ever to integrate someone of a different faith or culture into your family. I’m finding that the opposite is true. In working with my cross-cultural clients I’ve discovered that while we’re exposed to other cultures more than ever, some families still experience a hard time accepting your relationship.
A lot of times when emotions take you by surprise it leads to overwhelm. This inevitably leads to paralysis and you start to ignore your responsibilities to your wedding. As the clock keeps ticking the overdue tasks will only start to weigh you down. Having a planner by your side will make each stage easier to navigate through as well as will keep the planning moving along even if you aren’t quite ready to hop back into the process.
We ran a poll a few weeks ago with our followers and many of them didn’t know our blog existed as a resource for planning a wedding. Every week on Tuesday we post a new blog and every other week you get a round up of the blogs when you sign up to our newsletter, which you can do here.
In this post I’m going to walk you through a Jewish marriage ceremony we planned for our Indian-Jewish-American client. This wedding example in particular was more Jewish centric because the bride’s family was planning their Indian inspired wedding in India set to be a few months after their American wedding.
Danielle and Brendan dreamed of having a laid back backyard-vibe wedding. While their venue was far from being a backyard, the Long Beach Museum of Art had a large lawn and an ocean view patio perfect for their intimate celebration. Their family traveled from all over but mostly from New York as they're California transplants.
I’ve been planning for years now and came up with a system that I wanted to share with you as you embark on this new journey. There are so many moving parts to your planning journey and want to help you navigate through them in bite size pieces.
I want to let you in on a wedding planning tip / secret. If you’re in a similar situation or even if you think you’ve got it all figured out, there is a service that planners offer called “Consulting.” Not all planners offer it but they're out there...
First, narrow down the theme or the setting. Do you imagine dancing with the love of your life in a country barn in cowgirl boots, or under the stars in a whimsical woodland scene, or with your toes wiggling in the sand at your no-shoes required beach extravaganza?
Whether its under the stars, alongside the coastline, in the twinkled gazebo, amidst the sequoia trees, or with grand chandeliers above you - the 'First Dance' is one of the most magical moments. It's the first alone time-intimate time- you get after all the fun-ness you've been having. Seriously everything else is a blur and you are zoned in on your best friend.
